Height, Weight & Growth History Records

For all patients, we need current height and weight measurements. For children with Faltering Growth, please also provide growth charts or weight & height history. These are necessary for calculations.

Microba: Gut Diagnostics

One of the most comprehensive gut microbiome test available for people with complex illnesses affecting their gut, immune systems and brain health.

Your full profile

Find out what your gut microbiome can tell you about your health. If you have persistent gut, brain, metabolic or autoimmune dysfunctions, this microbiome test is likely to be helpful for you.

It's a simple test

After you order it online, a kit will be sent to your home. Collect one sample in one easy step and send it back to the lab in the pre-paid envelope. It's that easy. You will receive an extensive interactive report online.

Laboratory Tests & Supplements

  • Your GP or specialist can order some of the blood, urine and stool tests that we need to assess your nutrition status. Medicare will cover most of these.
  • Michael will advise your doctor on necessary lab tests.
  • There are also some specialist lab tests that Michael can order directly for you. You will pay the lab directly for these tests.
  • These tests are useful for a very detailed analysis of your gut microbiome profile, food allergies & intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, toxicities and functioning of important biochemistry pathways.
  • Nutrition supplements vary widely in quality, chemical form, combinations of nutrients and doses.
  • Michael will advise on which supplements you might need and which products to purchase.
  • Most of the nutrition supplements used in this practice will require a prescription provided by Michael.  
  • We do not directly dispense supplements, though we can prescribe and order most of these for you online or via your local pharmacist. Online prescriptions can be shipped to your home address.

Advanced Nutrition Therapy Plans

Often children with complex needs (e.g. neuro-developmental disorders) benefit from an Advanced Nutrition Therapy Plan. They are approx. 35-40 pages. Go further, faster, with the best possible plan. It will save you multiple appointments.

Medicare, Health Funds & Rebates

  • Medicare rebates are only available for clients who visit me in a clinic setting in Northcote. Medicare (unfortunately) does not yet provide rebates for phone and video consults.
  • For people who visit a clinic location, you can claim Medicare rebates if you have an Enhanced Primary Care Plan from your doctor. You must bring it to the appointment. We will then send a link to your phone to enable the Medicare payment.
  • If you want to claim a Medicare rebate, you will need an Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) from your doctor. Just ask them. Medicare provides rebates for up to 5 visits per year to an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD).
  • You may be eligible for up to $53.80 per appointment, from Medicare. Private health funds also often provide rebates for consults with dietitians. Please check with your fund.

Register online for < Medipass > payments. It's easy.
To simplify payments, especially for rebates, please register online at Medipass. Most health providers use this system for payments (it powers HICAPS). 
Before your appointment, add your Medicare details, health fund and credit card info. If the appointment is for your child, then also add your CHILD's information.
From July 2019, Medicare, health funds and gap payments will be integrated onto one web-based platform at Medipass (finally, no more HICAPS terminals!).
